3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
15th March 2014
Clear bright gold - amber beer. A small and very pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and surprisingly minerally crisp. Fresh light malt, thin cream and light barrel induced vanilla. Light touch of dried fruits and a whisper of bitter wood. Finishes light and fruity fresh with the sherry finally making an appearance in the aftertaste. This was lighter than expected or wanted but in kinda works and the beer slipped down easy.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not anymore special than the other ’special’ releases. A dissapointment, butterscotch is the dominant aroma.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma : sweet notes of sherry and oak. Not much from the malts and hardly any hop aroma
Taste: like most their beers, almost all the taste is in the finish where the barrell ageing contributes to almost all the flavor
Appearance : clear gold body with low head retention

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (27:-). Trä, sötma, Sherry, len i munnen, fruktig, ek, lång avslutning. Det är väldigt mycket Innis & Gunn i den här, både i doften och i smaken.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear golden-amber with a small white head and bits of lace here and there on the glass. Aroma is sweet vanilla, oak, figs, toffee, faint chocolate, clove spiciness, light scotch and moderate residual malty sweetness. Flavour is chocolate, oak, scotch, caramel, earthy and a mild warming alcohol.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear orangish amber with a small white head that dissipates into a small ring. Aroma of sweet dried fruits(figs, dates), wood, sherry and a hint of spiciness in the background. Taste is caramel, wood, and grassy hops and it is very dry from start to finish. For as sweet as the aroma is one would expect a bit more sweetness in the flavor. Flavor goes well into the finish and makes this a nice pleasant beer to drink but a bit more risky than most Innis beers.
